Lady Emily Ashton accepted Colin Hargreaves's proposal only after a significant amount of wooing, but what rational woman could keep refusing a man who deeds to her all the books in his library?

After a harrowing investigation in Vienna, they have arrived at Emily's villa on the Greek island of Santorini, and the time, at last, has come for them to marry.

THE BRIDAL STRAIN is a three thousand word vignette in the bestselling Lady Emily series, coming between A FATAL WATZ and TEARS OF PEARL. This edition also contains two short essays on writing historical fiction.

About the Author

The daughter of two philosophy professors, I grew up surrounded by books. I was convinced from an early age that I was born in the wrong century and spent much of my childhood under the dining room table pretending it was a covered wagon. Even there, I was never without a book in hand and loved reading and history more than anything. I studied English Literature and Medieval History at the University of Notre Dame. Writing is a natural offshoot of reading, and my first novel, And Only to Deceive, was published in 2005. I'm the author of the long-running Lady Emily Series as well as the novel Elizabeth: The Golden Age. One of the best parts of being an author is seeing your books translated, and I'm currently in love with the Japanese editions of the Emily books.

I played nomad for a long time, living in Indiana, Amsterdam, London, Wyoming, Vermont, Connecticut, and Tennessee before settling down. My husband, the brilliant British novelist Andrew Grant (I may be biased but that doesn't mean I'm wrong) and I live in southeastern Wyoming. I still don't have a covered wagon, but a log house goes a long way toward fulfilling my pioneer fantasies. Andrew makes sure I get my English characters right, and I make sure his American ones sound American.
